South African apartheid died in the ’90s — but the Left today are resurrecting it

David MenziesMission Specialist

South Africa’s a beautiful country but back in 1976 it was an ugly place politically since the country was still clinging to the odious system of apartheid.

Apartheid finally met its demise in the early ‘90s, so why does the Left seem to be championing apartheid-lite on this side of the pond?

Look what’s happening in 2017 as the political Left, which is supposedly all about inclusion, is now all about promoting exclusion based on skin colour.

Watch as I look at some trends on university campuses, like blacks-only graduation ceremonies and the recent debacle at Evergreen State College, where social justice warriors demanded that whites remove themselves from campus.

With this mandate for dividing people based on race, the Left has seemingly forgotten what it once fought against and have devolved into what they once hated.

Actually, I think many of these folks might have really enjoyed living in South Africa, circa 1976.

South Africa today is a very dangerous place today.

If you are not black enough, you are a target.

David you are too white for the black folks – your comments are accurate but certainly not wanted by black islamic folks – they hate you.

Remember, you can only be racist if you are a white Christian – all others are given a “cultural free pass”.

Loved your commentary.

Be safe and be happy.

Because the left wants to take all of that away from you!

Dirk Kanis—I was told by a couple that could afford to leave South Africa, that after Apartheid things worked for a number of years until the Gov’t at the time opened the borders to the uncivilized Countries in Africa. These Migrants were brought up that Whites were the enemy, and went after them.
As you say , the place is a shit hole now and getting worse. The new Gov’t , if elected wants to take White’s land away without compensation.
In some ways, I can see Canada heading towards destruction under the Trudeau Government.

“Apartheid finally met its demise in the early ‘90s”, should read, Apartheid unfortunately met its demise in the early ‘90s and now the place is a genocidal shit hole and Canada was a hypocrite making back door deals during their so called sanctions. Actually Mr. Menzies, the period in SA you speak of was a lot better than it is now and your finger pointing reeks of poor research and comparing apples and oranges. Now just go to a mosk near you and witness female segregation in full swing, “apartheid heavy”

Ron, I don’t care a bit of what the crazy left says, you know. But I do care about my taxes being thrown at 3rd world dictatorships and at the weapons of mass migration of TruDope. There is a war against whites, why should I pay for them then? Segregation works both ways. As you say, our life boat is full.

CAROLE MASSE’—-I would be for segregation --of my taxes, being used for White Canadians. lol
Catchy phrase, however the left would slam it.
An hour ago on CTV News Net, they had an expert that said that there were 70 million refugees that had to find other countries to live in because of wars. This does not count people that have to move as a result of droughts etc.. (Also Africa)
I am sure our unicorn hugging leader will want a good share of those people; then it becomes the too many in a life-boat theory where all die.
In 1956 my dad brought home our first TV Set; within a month I remember a commercial in black and white which said for $2.00 a month you can feed a family of 4 in Africa. Sixty years later you could color the ad and show the same commercial. The only thing that can help these people is BIRTH CONTROL.
We cannot let them in our life-boat as it is full.

Have to admit, it makes me question the sanity of my generation in supporting equal rights. Might as well have not bothered. Youth wasted.

I used to always wonder why the media only seemed to ever focus on South Africa back then , as if the rest of the continent was all love and peace and tolerance.

The left only does things that makes them feel better and gives them something to brag and virtue signal about.

Gary Wiebe, Gerald Butts didn’t warn Trudeau how wearing Ramadan socks to a gay parade is in bad taste. How many Islamic states throw gay people off of high buildings again? Homosexuality is punishable by death, and, Trudeau decided to wear socks in support of Islam; he was sitting beside an oblivious Kathleen Wynne. The Islamists Trudeau is beholden to will also be angry at him, he openly supported LGBT community…..that’s going to cost him!

Thinking about it, I would be for segregation. … of my taxes, being used only for white Canadians. Lol

How is it that our “diversity is our strength” PM has kept silent on this issue? Oh, silly me. He’s too busy showing off his socks and hugging his unicorn.

David Menzies, the left has devolved indeed!
Why didn’t the elders of the graduating class simply refuse to see their children segregated; no matter how much they demanded it? Did no one have the sense to say, “Nope, you are graduating as a student body, no way am I attending to watch my entitled child disregard history and peace makers such as MLK Jr, I refuse!”
University of Toronto shame on you for hosting this event!
